's wicked snap. >> he is wicked snap. we'll also be talking about what chris christie thinks of president obama's and his reaction to hurricane sandy. >> but we want to say good morning to jacki schechner who is sitting in steph's seat. >> a good day to get rid of her. [ laughter ] >> president obama is declaring major disasters today in new jersey and new york, he has also declared emergency conditions in both virginia and west virginia. sandy is now called a post tropical cyclone. firefighters are also having to go in and use a boat to rescue dozens of people. about 6 million people are without power including a large section of manhattan. we don't think about these little things -- >> elevateorelevators. >> exactly. west virginia pummelled by snow which we'll talk more about. also seeing snowfall in pennsylvania, virginia and north carolina. now mitt romney is back pedalling saying he could not get rid of fema which is a direct contradiction to what he said during the primary debates. more than 15 hurricane sandy staff for fema are positioned along the east coast. th
what's happening there. this is the podium but moments later chris christie will be briefing his state. chris christie holding a press conference here that we'll bring you live here on cnn. a lot of people weren't expecting a storm this late in the season, and now the rush is on to get supplies. some storms already running low. people looking for bottled water, you are finding empty shelves there. look at that boat. trying to get them out and get them safe. despite mandatory evacuations in areas of new jersey, delaware, some people are bound to stay in their homes as they always do. and we know the answer to that, that's a bad idea, right? with me now, general russell honory, you commanded the military in new orleans as a general there, should people prepare differently for this storm than they do, because there are different elements with this, is there a different preparation for this storm? >> we have gone into this storm for the last few years since katrina to encourage people to have a three day's supply of food and water on hand for an event just like this. >> because usually whe
. >> obama was joined by new jersey governor chris christie, who is republican, but christie has praised the way the president has handled the crisis. they viewed storm damage by helicopter. obama will also be meeting with residents and emergency workers. >> cleanup work is in full swing on the east coast after sandy flooded cities, washed out bridges, and caused billions of dollars in damage. >> but new york city is making it clear it is back in business. mayor michael bloomberg rate in the opening bell at the new york stock exchange, which was closed for two days. >> the storm killed over 40 people on the east coast and caused unprecedented damage. >> life is slowly returning to normal in new york. on wall street, major stock their first two-day closure ine- over a century. emergency generators provided the power. most of lower manhattan is still in the dark. an unusual event in the city that never sleeps. >> you look uptown, and you see lights. you look downtown and it is completely black. i was driving with a partner of mine, and i said that i do not think we will ever see something
important. this morning on fox and friends, chris christie, the republican governor, praising president obama. >> and at 2 a.m. i got a call from fema and signed a couple of declarations, and give credit to the president, on the phone with me, three times, and anything i've asked for and i thank the president publicly for that he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: of course, chris christie is known as a straight shooter and argue that president obama has looked presidential during the storm so far, what do you think, david? >> well, all he has to do is do his job and it's not going to help or hurt him i think on the political front, it's a matter of just appearing that i've taken care of whatever the states have asked me to do. fema will have to do their responsibilities and we'll see how that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how do
by this storm. >> yeah. i don't think we know all that's happened to the jersey shore yet. governor christie is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going
right now rescuing people. >> by the way, we're waiting for an update from chris christie. we'll have that for you when it happens. this is seaside heights, another town along the jersey shore, where the wind and waves are still raging this morning. this is what people are waking up to on long island. water breaks the sea wall. look at these rocks everywhere. much of the damage was from high winds last night sft storm surge. fugate gave us his concern this morning. >> now with the blizzard in west virginia, our concern is primary life safety and then we'll start getting to the critical infrastructure and we'll have power outages and the list of things is enormous. first thing is keep people alive, keep people safe and rescue those in danger. >> you just heard craig fugate mention west virginia, this is the view there. more than a foot of snow has fallen and higher elevations are seeing two feet and blizzard warnings are in effect until tomorrow. >>> let's take a look at ground zero, new york city last night. water everywhere where there is still a construction site there. new york was
, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the sunshine state since the start of the general election back in april. you can see both campaigns pouring in tens of millions of dollars to run ads in this state. 20 electoral votes up for grabs in florida. that's why both campaigns are spending a lot of attention on florida, christi. >> my home state of ohio, another critical swing state. what's it look like? >> reporter: oh, yeah. you think florida's getting a lot of attention? ohio's getting just as much, if not more. only 18 electoral votes in your home state, but you know what, here are the latest numbers. here is our br
twitter accounts @robmarcianocnn. he's awesome. governor christie says no washing cars, no watering lawns. in hoboken, right across the river from new york city, the lower part of the city, workers have managed to drain those filthy floodwaters. they thought maybe they were filled with sewage and bacteria and gasoline. this had been keeping almost half of the city's residents trapped inside their homes. let's get right to bob van dillen. the national guard is there, right, bob? they're helping with rescues and helping with supplies too. >> reporter: indeed, soledad. good morning to you. a different story flrthis morni from yesterday. the national guard is still here, but yesterday morning, everybody were in their trucks. the trucks are still here, but they're not idling and i haven't seen a single national guard troop and all the roads dry. the evacuations, they have essentially ceased. that's the good news. but the bad news is the power is still out and people obviously are getting a little bit cold. temperatures right now down into the 40s. yesterday morning, this was also a staging are
significant damages. martha: we heard from governor christie, he is very concerned about the whole state. i know he is trying to get up into a helicopter to look at some of the damage. the wind are still too strong out there for that. rick what can you tell us about that whole area? martha: that was live shot from seaside heights, new jersey. go ahead, rick. >> the damages are widespread. mike come around this way. just to give people an idea how deep this stand is on this particular road. this along, like, you know, getting front-end loader in here to scoop the sand off the streets. this is just one block of one community. there are communities up and down the new jersey coastline just like this. they saw several feet of water. all the dunes were breeched. they have been washed away. that sand is up and down the streets here. look how bad this oceanfront hotel was torn up. the fencing is knocked down. we saw pieces of houses float by us last night. you see where some of the debris is coming from. there are fences gone. there are pools carried away and businesses are just really, really hit
the damage along with governor chris christie. a governor who surprised many people today when he called the president, and i quote, outstanding and incredibly supportive. words he wouldn't have used at the height of election battle last week. governor christie joins me from the state emergency command center. governor, thank you for joining me. i watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today. really quiteunprecedented. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. in fact, today i toured the jersey coastline in my helicopter and i landed in two spots on the jersey shore. i can tell you that i have never seen devastation like this in my life. not here in new jersey. you see sights like the seaside heights boardwalk, where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the boardwalk is gone. it is gone. amusement rides, a roller coaster, a flume, in the ocean. it's incredible. homes destroyed. it's an awful thing. >> new jersey people are known for their resilience, they're tough people. you yourself are a tough guy and i have seen that many times. but ho
initially. let's look at governor christie's comments. depending so much on how fast the money gets back into the system and there's rebuilding. having lived in new york, you realize that the winter is coming. there's a huge inventive for people to start getting these things fixed right away. so that money will be put to work. so $30 billion is still our best estimate. at this point in time, depends on how quickly the money is put back into place. but having lived in this area, you probably appreciate the fact that actually a lot of improvements will happen now with better infrastructure, especially on the public sector level, so we actually could see an addition to economic growth in the first quarter greater than the loss in the fourth quarter. >> this is an important point, because as people try to sort out the impact, we've seen estimates from your firm that this could take two tenths out of fourth quarter gdp. whether we'll actually give a fourth quarter boost. i just wonder -- i know the situation aren't directly comparable, but in japan, we failed to really see the economy benefit
of sandy's landfall. chris christie noting that a lot of these people are unaccounted for. may be too late to get them until morning. 250,000 people without power here so it's going to be a long night if you're on one of the barrier islands. >> just lost her shot there. >> be safe. haurricane sandy is forcing several major oil refineries to shut tight and you know what that does to gas prices. mary thompson is live from baltimore. >> reporter: hey, bill, you know, brian schactman on live and sandy is south, of course, of the storm system, the storm north, and that's where the refineries in the northeast are located. now, in the wake of today's storm, and, of course, pending what happens tomorrow, a couple of refineries and some pipelines have shut down. let's give you the rundown. the linden refinery in new jersey or the phillips 66 shutting down completely along with the hess refinery. we have three others that are running at lower run raise, basically operating at very minimal levels, but they can get up and running again once the storm has passed. there's one refinery that was recently
in the affected areas, including governor christie, governor cuomo and mayor bloomberg. i want to praise them for the extraordinary work that they have done. you know, sadly we are getting more experience with these kinds of big impact storms along the east coast and the preparation shows. were it not for the outstanding work that they and their teams have already done and will continue to do in the affected regions, we could have seen more deaths and more property damage. so they have done extraordinary work, working around the clock. the coordination between the state, local and federal governments has been outstanding. obviously we're now moving into the recovery phase in a lot of the most severely affected areas. new jersey, new york in particular have been pounded by this storm, connecticut has taken a big hit. because of some of the work that has been done ahead of time, we have been able to get over a thousand fema officials in place, prepositioned. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water, emergency generators to ensure that hospitals and law enforcement offices are ab
dozens of evacuees. governor chris christie blamed atlantic city's mayor, who says didn't do enough to let people know they needed to leave. >> i hope and pray that there won't be any loss of life because of it. >> reporter: from sleepy beachside communities to the nation's capital and new england, sandy was unrelenting, bringing down everything from mammoth trees to utility poles. a coast guard rescue took place after the "hms bounty" sank. in allenhurst new jersey cbs news cameras captured waves crashing against a beachfront restaurant before the building collapsed. even houses on stilts no match. >> it's pretty bad. it's not over yet. so i don't know how much worse it's going to be. >> reporter: and there wasn't just rain. there was snow. whiteout conditions in some spots. sandy may be slowing down but the twin threat in the east from inundating rains and historic flooding is far from over. and there is more evidence of that in moonachie, new jersey this morning just outside new york city. rescues and evacuations have been under way today after that city
wednesday afternoon with new jersey governor chris christie. the two saw devastated areas from the air on marine one and met with people in the oceanside city, both trying to lift the spirits of residents left to pick up the pieces and pledging to work together. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. and on the phone conversation with his him, was able to witness it today personally. >> the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us from green bay, wisconsin, where the president will make his first campaign stop since the storm. brianna, will the president -- of course the president will continue to monitor from wisconsin, right? >> reporter: of course, he will, carol. we're hearing from white house officials that before he leaves this morning, heading back on the campaign trail, he will be receiving a briefing from the head of fema, craig fugat
the damage today with governor christie, and coming in this morning, i heard -- i was listening to the radio and i heard a bunch of sounds from christie. >> he had gone to the shore yesterday. >> giving people hugs. the boardwalk is gone in a lot of places. we showed some amusement rides. kayla has spent two days in cape may. she's moved north to atlantic city where the damage is also extensive. hey, kayla. >> hey, joe. the president is scheduled to visit atlantic city here alongside governor christie. we'll be taking that live as it occurs. the brunt of the storm was born by the jersey shore. the entire state of new jersey still reeling. two million residents without power. and governor christie calling the damage incalculable. that's the job of officials as they start figuring out how to start repairing the damage that has occurred. some experts around the industry have tried to start putting a number on this. a disaster modelling agency forecast losses between ten and 20 billion dollars. a former economist with the international trade commission scored that much higher with losses up to $
and staunch romney supporter chris christie has. >> the president has been outstanding in this. the folks at fema have been slept. >> reporter: the fema director looked ahead to next tuesday offering federal assistance, generators and the like to states where polling places might still lack power. mitt romney was in ohio not to talk issues, to collect cans. romney backers brought food for new jersey. >> and i appreciate your generosity. it is part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. >> reporter: mr. romney had argued in a primary debate for disaster relief to be shifted to the states. even to nongovernment charities. would he kill fema? no answer today. >> what would you do with people a? why won't you answer any questions? >> reporter: obama's spokesperson says the states are in the best position to direct the assistance. tomorrow, president obama joins high profile republican governor chris christie for a tour of new jersey damage. political opponents brought together by the super storm. i'm steve handelsman, news4. >> so far the federal response
by the hundred, they looked dazed. one man came out the governor chris christie, and said, i lost everything, but i'm alive. he said he was grateful. to be alive. you know, a great pollute in bullet in terms of human life being destroyed was averteed. it will take months, but with winter approaching we need to moratorium aggressively to make sure that homes get fixed. gerri: congressman, you know, just explain to our viewers, this is gold coast in new jersey, expensive beautiful homes in this area. you know seaside, it is an area that is covetted by so many people, how long do you think it will take to bring it back? are you confident you will get support you need from state, and federal government challenge play a role -- federal government that will play a role. >> there is no doubt governor made it clear he is all in committed. and you know when it comes to the repair, you know congress has passed and i have supported, laws, including our fema legislation that to the best of our ability to tries to make whole. there is going to be needs for more loans for people to get their businesses ba
, governor cue ono. great things of governor christi saying nice things about president obama. what's with the good will? is it necessity or does it bring together people? >> you have to hope that times like this when you're thrust into the reality of the real work of government, which is about protecting people, saving people, keeping people safe, that that really makes everybody work together, and what you really also have to hope is that that experience will create a little muscle memory so the next time we have an issue that maybe isn't a natural disaster, we'll all remember how we worked so well together and how much better that is for the overall greater good. >> it doesn't always work this way. i mean, you sound very optimistic about what you have watched today, over seen it in the city with the other council members, but i think of john lindsay who basically was laughed out of office after one of these snowstorms, i think of jane bern in chicago, mayor nagin in new orleans. they blew it. >> you don't want ever want this to happen on your watch if you're a mayor or elected of
christie and the mayor of atlantic city. governor said the mayor didn't follow the instructions properly, didn't work hard enough to get people out of the city. we had both of them on air last night, pretty much calling each other names. so i imagine there will be some phone calls this morning about what should have happened. but bottom line, our initial assessment of atlantic city right now, soledad, is it may -- it splay dodged the worst of it despite how bad it looked last night. >> it surely looked bad. thank you, ali, certainly appreciate it. we're going to head now to -- who's up next? peter king, congressman peter king, looks like he's ready for us. peter king is out in long island, and obviously long island took a big brunt of this storm. congressman king, thank you for your time. first tell me exactly the damage that you've seen. i haven't had a lot of live reports on what has happened in long island outside of my hometown, smithtown, which i know has lost power. can you tell me what some of the worst damage is? >> yeah, that's right. absolutely devastating. for instance, long b
that governor christie talked about yesterday. this is a place kids in new jersey look forward to than anyplace else. the amusement park along seaside heights. it is absolutely heartbreaking. it is gone. it is gone and it will need to be rebuilt. governor christie trying to keep everyone's spirits up. we're a tough state and we will rebuild but you just, you never imagine in your life, as i think he said yesterday you will ever see anything like this. bill: yesterday at this time we did not have helicopters in the air. now that we have the aerial pictures you can see the scope of devastation there. there are people blogging near this area that suggested seaside heights has been destroyed. martha: looks like it has. bill: based on images here. you look at the boardwalk and all the debris that comes in with a storm like this, that is a much different place today, for so many people. we're going to see the governor down there a bit later today. president obama on the jersey shore. we move down to rick leventhal live on the shore. but now in point pleasant. rick, you've been working yeoman's hours
jersey governor chris christie made some very, very dire assessments to what he expects the damage will be in atlantic city and on the jersey shore. take a listen. >> i think what we'll find, unfortunately, when we get to the jersey shore today is total devastation. and that's the real concern. because not only is it people's homes and private property but also you have the tourism industry in new jersey which is one of our biggest industries. we're going to have to work hard to make sure we're ready for next summer at the jersey shore. >> reporter: now, of course, the casino industry the biggest industry in atlantic city. those 12 flagship casinos have been closed throughout the week. they cost about $50 million in lost revenue during irene and the expectation was that because the season was a little bit softer, maybe it wouldn't be as bad. now it's clear that even though as christie called it the damage is incalculable right now it will be much steeper than irene. hopefully we'll get more from christie later. a few other buzz words, search and rescue teams went out at 5:30 trying
probably heard the spat going on between new jersey governor chris christie and the mayor of atlantic city. the governor says the mayor didn't do enough to get people to take it seriously about leaving. the bottom line is that the water is all gone. this is where i was standing yesterday. this was waist deep at one point. the water has receded. still a lot of flooding. and we are seeing a number of coast guard overflies that started again at first light this morning around 7:00 am. and they're doing an evaluation of whether or not there need to be rescues. we've not heard of active search and rescues. they are evaluating flooding, seeing who needs help. that's the boredwalk behind me, about three-quarters of a mile down. you can see those red lights. mostly just emergency vehicles around town. no serious damage. there are power outages here in atlantic city, carol. >> i'm sure. ali velshi reporting live from atlantic city, new jersey. >>> we've been telling you all morning long about a breach in a levee in new jersey that has flooded at least four towns. the floodwaters are very deep right
covering blocks and blocks and blocks of homes. chris christie said the level of devastation at the jersey shore is unthinkable. this is not far from the area where the coast guard will spend all day rescuing hundreds of people trapped by floodwaters. brian todd is on the scene with more. what are you seeing and hearing, brian? >> reporter: not all of them are victims from this incident. at just after midnight, a birm or a levee was breached by a tidal surge and water just came in within just a few minutes and pretty much engulfed those three towns. babies had to be pulled out. high clearance as you can see behind me the weather is still not very good here. in the school behind me, one of them, 9-year-old mill dread schwartz has lived in new jersey her entire life. i talked to her just as she got off one of the rescue vehicles. >> i never seen anything like this ever. >> can you describe what happened when the water came? >> we were sleeping. my daughter and i. >> hearing stories like that from victims all over the place here. many of them coming through this facility and they are just try
there is atlantic city in real life. you realize that chris christie had what we were looking for on google maps. suddenly you realize, holy cow. this is katrina-like. loss of life, no. but property. where did it go? >> the mayor is going to ring the opening bell here this morning. the president apparently reportedly this morning wanted to visit manhattan. bloomberg said i can't spare the cops right now. he's going to instead visit the jersey shore with governor christie. that's the level we're at where we're not able to receive the sitting president of the united states. it says a lot. >> seaside heights, jersey shore show, very hard hit for those mtv officials. >> the jersey shore of my youth is gone. amazing pictures. >> the sand in the middle of -- we don't know anything because if you look at long beach island, there's sand everywhere. you can't get to it to figure out how much money and property. it's property. >> true enough. back to the exchange, bob pisani has been on the case all morning long regarding how we're going to trade today here at nyse. good morning, bob. >> good morning. i'm
by both the president and governor christie. i think we saw the very best of president obama, not only leading, but leading with a deep sense of humanity. as a lifelong drremocrat, it wouldn't surprise anyone i'm voting and supporting the president. >> okay. so has it been his leadership over sandy that changed your mind? or were you always in favor of the president? >> no, no. the president always had my vote. what i wanted from the president was an ability to work closely with the republican congress to be able to get things done. i think he has shown significant leadership, the kind of stewardship of the economy in the country and world affairs he deserves to be re-elected. as a lifelong democrat, it doesn't surprise anyone i'm supporting and voting for the president. >> let's talk about hurricane sandy for a minute. can you give us an update out this hurricane has impacted your operation and the supply changes in the area? you look at shops and restaurants in the u.s. a lot of them are closed still. >> well, first off, as a lifelong new yorker and my family is still in new york, i
. christie, is the time for persuasion when you get down to. it is it over? >> i cooperate have said it better myself, yes. 10 days out the time for persuasion is over. we have had all of the major game-changing moments in the campaign already. we had the conventions, the debates and even the primary. now all it comes down to say for some late-breaking gaff from the candidate like richard murdoch's comments on rape this past week. it is going to be about getting out the people who you know will vote for you and may or may not get to the polls. >> you noah lot about the process here because you were involved in it. say an independent voter in ohio is contacted by telephone by the romney campaign. how does that work? >> well, what happens -- say somebody calls up and they say who are you supporting for president? they may go through a list of questions to find out if they are a committed voter or a leaned voter or undecide. if they are committed they go into the poll of get out the vote which makes sure they early vote or vote on election day. they will still try to do the persuasion i
: one. things that governor christie was saying in the press conference, he's out in a helicopter and he can't land anywhere. when is it possible, we need rescue crews. >> like i said, you're not going to recognize the jersey shore from atlantic city northward and i went out with that on friday and i still-- all i'm saying is look, the storm angle, where it hit, the amount of the large amount of 75 to 95 mile per hour winds rather than focused fury like charlie and andrew, contributed to this, piled it back in and takes a while for the water to go out. the reason why i said it's still a problem today because that water, that wind instead of turning to the west and blowing it back out again like in delaware bay, believe it or not, the tide started dropping. you see how rehoboth beach is, they didn't have a bigger problem-- >> we'll talk to you more throughout the afternoon. thank you very much. >> my pleasure. cheryl: 15,000 flights grounded by the storms and airports are closed, they've got flooded runway. and disaster modeling fr, he's coming up next, and let's take a look at one of the
. >> if you want to know how close the coordination has been, listen to new jersey governor chris christie. >> i've been in touch with president obama this afternoon. the president called me at about 2:15 this afternoon. it was just the two of us on the phone. we had a good conversation. the president wanted to know if we had everything that we needed to be able to respond to the storm. i told him we did. we wanted to check on the level of cooperation with fema, i said it was excellent. he said if at any point over the next 48 hours, i was not getting from the federal government i should call him directly at the white house and had he was going to be there. and that i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else. just call him. >> president obama was quick to point out the response is part of the normal government operations. it's not a reflection of the current election climate. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our e
